#3: Our 8 Tips for Cleaning Up Your Cleaning Supplies
We’re guessing that when it comes to cleaning the house, the task isn’t on your top 20 list of things you enjoy doing! To make cleaning worse, starting with disorganized or cluttered cleaning supplies makes the process all the more dreadful, and needless to say, counterproductive.

If you can’t find the large garbage bags, clean sponges, or you misplaced your brush and dustpan, you will waste valuable time looking for them – hence the irritation and grrrrr!
In order to avoid the worst-case scenario above, we recommend that you organize your cleaning supplies to save time and reduce frustration.
